intellect and a prosecutor's drive to countless battles in the senate. president obama came out this afternoon and said that specter was always a fighter from the days of starching out prosecution as a prosecutor in philadelphia and three decades of service in the senate. he was fiercely independent, never putting part or ideology ahead of the people he was chosen to serve. former president george w. bush said he loved our country and served it with integrity for three decades in the united states senate. we appreciate his contributions to america and are grateful for his many years of public service. he died at 11:39 this morning from complications of lymphoma and that the service is going to be on tuesday in penn valley, pennsylvania. he served as a democrat, then a republican, and then a democrat again. he was part of 13 supreme court confirmation hearings and crossed party lines during the robert bork hearing voting against bork which was seen as an important factor in that failed nomination, long before he became pennsylvania's longest serving senator, he was the district a

obama if someone passed the extension they will be gone. if mitt romney is reelected and you get a republican senate you will have an extension of one year of all of the bush tax cuts while governor romney works on the tax reform. i think we will get hit with is a pay roll tax cut that we got several years ago. they cut it from 6-4 that is a $1,000 on a family. >> we have gotten used to that. and no one is mentioning that. and a $2000 on a family making a thousand. this is tremendous hit and my understanding that both parties agreed that has to lapse. but at our economy of 1.4 that a tremendous growth. >> it is slower now than when the president justified pushing back the rate hikes. >> you cannot let taxes go up. >> isn't there more justification now? >> if you took economic reality and you took even the democratic idea of economics. you don't raise taxing on an economy that is slowing down to one percent. >> chuck schumer will not entertain that. we mentioned that when biden had that. they had changed the math to make it more palatable. you are saying it wouldn't fly >> if pres

was beating the heck out of barack obama and the positions barack obama had taken as a senator all those years, and then the minute he was chosen for the vp nomination on the democrat ticket, joe biden all of a sudden said that barack obama then was the smartest boy in the room and that he was walking on water. and i so wanted to understand what all the flip-flops were and the positions that he had taken then going from senator to vp nominee. i hope that paul ryan gets to coax that out of him because it's very important for the electorate to understand how politicians can change their minds, tear policies, their principles -- their policies, their principles, their foundational substance so quickly according to politics, not principle. megyn: do you think that either of these men will be nervous tonight? joe biden's had some 18 debates under his belt just in the recent election cycles because, of course, he was running for the democratic nomination, didn't get it, lost to barack obama, but had a lot of debates on the democratic side, and paul ryan, he's a seven-term congressman, but this is re
in the u.s. senate. in 2008 as a presidential canada, the obama juggernaut was too much for hillary as she woefully mismanaged her campaign. again, no matter. the new president rewarded hillary by appointing her secretary of state. in washington, you see, it's all about jobs, and obama needed bill clinton's support in and connections. over the past four years mrs. clinton has covered the globe, setting a record for most miles traveled by any secretary of state, but miles don't equal competence. a fact made nakedly clear at the u.s. consulate in benghazi last september 11th. because hillary still thinks it takes a village instead of automatic weapons, there were no marines deployed to either the embassy in tripoli or the ben benghazi consulate. in a spasm of foggy idealism, deep faith was entrusted in the unreliable local libya militias and a skeleton security staff. this in a country still immersed in the throes of revolution. it is no secret that the secretary of state, a former anti-war activist, is on record for her disparaging opinions of military presence. the hearing held last wednes

trust, john mclaughlin that shows that romney is defeating obama in pennsylvania by 49-forty46. smith's running very close to casey for the senate. ryan needs to keep that momentum up approximate this election could be over. i think the big thing is the contrast between the politician and a policy person. a young person and an old person. i think on both scores, ryan will really help romney. we have to realize how much of obama's appeal is generational. when you you are putting on a v.p. debate with a 25 or 25-year, i guess, difference in age, and one who is kind of a haggard regular old-time bomb baftic politician, and the other, a very incisive, sharp, focused policy person, i think that you really are going to see ryan have a tremendous edge. the other thing is that ryan wrote the romney program. this is not just a candidate for v.p., his the intellectual leader of the republican party today. for him to be up there debating in a political debate is like, you know, it's like mickey mantle coming to bat because he -- he wrote all of these programs. he knows these budgets. he knows th
for obama care, but the house of representatives and the senate under pelosi and harry immediately exempted themselves from obama care. that is the kind of government that's crazy. if you want me to go on, i'll give you another example. the president's employment bill, the president's employment bill had provision 2a that i read myself that said it shall be an unlawful employment practice for any employment agency or any employer to fail to hire or to refer for hiring any person based upon their status as unemployed, and such unlawful practice in 2b would have been a violation of the civil rights act of 1964, and the equal employment opportunity act. those things would have immediately discouraged anybody from hiring anyone because they would have been sued no matter what. this kind of stuff is outrageously bad government by any standard whether you're a democrat or republican. it doesn't make any sense. >> steve, ron baron is standing by. he's been a long-term investor and he's got a question for you as well. ron? >> hi, steve. thanks for coming on the show. >> hi, ron. it's a pleasure. ni

're talking about the health care plan. and the president himself said he's okay with calling it obama care. here's what i want to talk about. exactly what was the issue when the president and his party had a filibuster proof senate? okay? filibuster proof. because every time i do a speaking tour and i talk about this, many people say, well, it didn't last long. it doesn't matter how long it lasted. but i was up for three hours last night researching it. of course, here's the date. from july of '09 to august of '09, filibuster proof. of course, that included two independents. one was mr. lieberman. vice presidential candidate in another day. and the other one was bernie saunders from vermont. socialist, independent, whatever you want to call it. here's the biggest slab. all told a little bit less than six months filibuster proof. and they owned the house. and they had the white house. so why is it exactly that they couldn't pass right in the midst of this on christmas eve the biggest, most complicated piece of legislation but never heard anything about jobs, which i hear now laser beam focu
